Swedish singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson approaches his music as a folk purist reminiscent of early Bob Dylan in his delivery and aesthetic. Performing under the moniker The Tallest Man on Earth, Matsson has four albums, the latest being Dark Bird, in which The Man pulls in mysterious backing voices credited in the liner notes as “angel vocals.” A charismatic stage presence fueled by an eager, in-the-know following, cements Matsson’s status as a darling of the indie underground.

Tuesday 6/7. $27.50-30, 7pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
